2:10pm
mengetsd we scheduled this for election on weather yay or neigh thanayon prop 30. although don't get excited because it only stabilizes us temporarily but at least we'll know what we will be getting for the next several years. so we had some goodíl9[ç around what that will look like. we still have -- we won't have any mid-year cuts for 12-13 but we will be seeing cuts in the coming years. so there will be deficits that we'll be facing, in the coming years. we talked about the mandated cost block[u&,9- getting some additional dollars from that. and then the budget projections were bleak. they continue to be bleak. so once again, we're not -- we're still in a position where
2:11pm
we'll be cutting and modifying and adjusting for next year. giving. >> who's first? commissioner wynns. >> commissioner wynns: i just mandated cost block grant be distributed to all the board members and hopefully at some time in the future we could have a discussion about that, because how this is going to work, this is another new change to the funding structure. it would be good for us all to know before we do the budget next year, to understand that better, i think. thank you. >> can i just encourage, if you haven't received this, mr. lee, all of the board members we asked for your input on what you'd like to hear. coming up we'd like to do our
2:12pm
budget committee earlier rather than later knowing there are additional cuts we have to focus on and to set our priorities. we also have had several discussions around this possible supplemental coming from the city so there will be some discussions around what we're going to be doing to continue to fund what the city is potentially going to be funding. tough decisions to make and we want to do it earlier rather than later. so did you get any feedback from anyone? i'm going to put you all out there now. >> i hate to do this commissioners but no i haven't received any feedback yet. if it would be helpful i can resend recirculate the e-mail. i know it was at an inopportune time for a lot of you. >> we want to encourage you because it's information like the block grant you had requested, commissioner wynns that helps understand the budget better and will help us make priority choices which we know
2:13pm
we will have to do. thank you. >> vice president norton nngetsd i was going to ask the same question about the materials that commissioner wynns asked. >> commissioner -- >> thank you. i just wanted to announce that the city select committee, next meeting is november 29, thursd thursday. >> any other -- commissioner murase. >> we will talk about fees for community partners using schoolh facilities. >> i just want to also remind everybody that there is a committee of the whole on december 4, and we are almost narrowed in on a topic. >> commissioner fewer. >> commissioner fewer: i just want to wish everybody a happy
2:14pm
thanksgiving. >> is there a meeting at your home on thanksgiving or something? okay. >> commissioner yee, i can do this later but based on the discussion i just had with deputy superintendent lee this afternoon and something i will be doing tomorrow, i think it would be good if somewhere in the budget committee we could cuts, and what the impact of those might be. >> the fiscal cliff you mean? >> well i'm doing a conference call tomorrow with nsca about the possible impact of equest ration. but whatever they look like, and if they occur, it would be good for us to understand what that impact might be on us, i think. that's another piece -- something that we're going to need, information we're going to need if we're going to -- before we start doing the budget development in my view, we need to understand these various
2:15pm
things. thank you. >> commissioner -- >> i just wanted to announce that the mission education center is having their annual first thanksgiving on friday, and the chinese education center is having their first thanksgiving in america for their students next week on the 20th. >> commissionerh1ñ?ñ?ñ maufas. >> commissioner maufas: you continue to draw out the meeting because it's not yet close to 7:30. thank you. >> we're trying our best. item t, report ofç actions. closed session actions of october 30, 2012, board of education with a vote of 5 ayes, two absentees and -- in the case of the 9th commission corporation rsus?áh cgc-is 1-51387, san francisco

2:17pm
>> my name is byron webb. i'm a development director with the port and i want to welcome to heron park. it was built in the wetlands in the bay view community adjacent to the
2:18pm
indian basin. it is approximately 22-acres and we are here to celebrate the expansion of the wetlands and also the creation of the first bidirectional bike way in the city and in this neighborhood. with that brief introduction -- the reason that we're here i wanted to introduce the mayor and have him speak to these two important projects for this bay view community. [applause] >> thank you brian. i know when you worked on redevelopment you have seen things and especially in the southeast sector and this is a great meet up with you and thank you very much. good morning everybody. so it's
2:19pm
still team work. yes. and i'm still kind of dazed from all of the celebrations from yesterday, but i am still willing to go ahead and say go giants yet again, but i have to tell you with a story of how even the players i think with all the news broadcasts i think they were genuinely happy, and especially when i saw angel pag an and after tony bennett sang and i need a picture. this is the most important picture in my life with tony bennett. he didn't want the picture with the world series trophy but with his family and tony ben etd. he was having fun. i think that was the level of fun the players were having with the event yesterday and i want to thank the rest of the city and everybody gets to enjoy these moments when they're unique, but we're going to carry that on.
2:20pm
today there is work to be done and announcements to be made and the southeast sector of our city is something i always registered to the city as your mayor we would never abandon and in fact we're making more investments in this neighborhood and heron's head park is the latest investment. it comes out of a two and a half million dollar investment out of a safety bond that we passed years ago and rec and park are almost there with 90% of the expenditures. all of the projects are accounted for and 2.5 million dollars of investment here and corrects access and updates landscaping and opens this place up even for more use and perhaps unlike many of our urban settings i think heron's head park offers probably a unique experience in that apart from many of the trucks that are next door it is
2:21pm
relatively a pretty quiet place. you're going to be able to have not only hiking and walking and familyand we have the quarter mile extension of a gap that was not filled in for bicycle use. that will bring yet additional numbers of people here in a great way and then it sits next door to something that i worked with on for a number of years and that is of course the literacy for environmental justice center, the ego center that we have here that brings a
2:22pm
lot of youth into training and education about our waterfront, about the environment, about the balance of nature, and in the urban setting and of course it not have happened on the theme i will talk about the rest of my administration which is the team work that has to happen. we have rec and part that administers the bond. we have the port with its staff and byron and susan reynolds and working with public works to open up this area with the private sector whether it's ledge or the park advocates or the green space or the blue green advocates and this is all connected when i was taught during my dpb days and we had people walk along the water way and experience the wonderful,
2:23pm
wonderful initial resources that we had, so all of these investments. >> >> will bring a lot of great use of open space to this area and not to forget we have a little off lease dog run that is also added in here for our dog lovers which there are countless many in the city and having an area where the dogs can play with their guardians and having a natural place for this to happen. you see all of the elements happening here and i want to thank the team and the agencies working together and with community and ledge and the department of the environment is here as well (railroad noise). >> yes and all positive activities. the railway station is historic and it will remain that way, so again welcome to
2:24pm
heron's head park. by the way for those of you who don't know why it's named this way is because if you ever have a chance to get above this area and see it literally is shaped like a heron's head and this is part of the honoring of our waterfront area. it's a great investment and of course it will lead me to say with the responsible, and this year is our proposition b which extends another great investment of $195 million to many other areas including the south east sector of open space that we got to take care of, and modernize. this is what rec and park does very well with dpw with all of the capital leadership in the
2:25pm
city that i got to work on with the city administrator. we need to take care of the infrastructure in many ways and we are loving our parks and why we want this great investment to continue and this is another small yet important addition. we will have $35 million more of that with the connection with the port and the next bond so it serves as a great example how we use the park bonds to of benefit of all of our users and residents and especially because we want our southeast sector to continue evolving in a positive way for everybody. it has been a trial for many of the residents here for many years because of the leadership of the different agencies working together with environmental advocates to make sure we strike that right balance we can have the spaces used for the
2:26pm
different use and it is enjoyment of the environment at the same time for the residents. thank you for being here with this announcement. we get four things out of this. a dog run, heron's head park with the landscape and wonderful access to it. we have the literacy for justice modernization here and of course we have the bi- directional lines for the bicycles and thanks for being here and congratulations to everybody. it has been a great part of this collaboration. this great team work and go giants and now go warriors. [applause] >> thank you mayor lee for your leadership for this
2:27pm
development. i want to introduce also monique moyer director of the port. who she began -- became director of the port she noticed how much energy and funds were being focused on the northern waterfront and requested whether or not we could do more in the southern waterfront and i think these projects are an example of how we responded to that challenge, so monique moyer executive director. [applause] >> good morning and thank you. it is wonderful to see so many of our friends and supporters and hard workers here today. how many of you are here at heron's head for the first time? a show of hands. not many. that is terrific news. well welcome back. this is one of the greatest places in the city i am fond of saying. it's visionary. you heard about that from the mayor already and part of it is san francisco moving forward in a way that other
2:28pm
cities just don't do. first and foremost other cities do not pass general obligation bonds of this type for a park and none for waterfront parks so we are already ahead of game that way, and we are proud of the generosity of the electoral for supporting that vision. secondly we don't have many parks and in san francisco there are a couple of open spaces but not in the middle much heavy industry use. this is a working port. work is going on as we speak but it's a place for habitat and a place for our own restoration so it makes it absolutely wonderful for that and you can get here by almost every mode. i would like to say you could take the train and the historic train and i encourage you to ride your bikes and
2:29pm
bring your dog. this is the first dog sanctioned area and we're proud of that and i want to say thank you to all the people that made it happen and as mayor lee alluded to it's a lot of people and byron and the rest of the committee and lead by karen paris and friends at the park conservation. we have steve from the engineering group. we have dan -- who i see i missed. excuse me. we have dpw who did the design for the area. we have them with the living classroom and maybe it was going to be in another area but it's going to be here at the port of san francisco and had the help of a number of agencies and
